Representative Text

1 Army of salvation, hear the trumpet call;
Go ye forth to battle, break sin’s mighty wall!
Crowns and thrones must perish, kings and kingdoms fall,
Till is crowned our Christ, the Savior, “Lord of all.”

Forward! forward! heed the battle cry;
Hail salvation’s banner; lift the standard high;
Forward! forward! fighting till ye die,
Ye shall gain the victory by and by.

2 Army of salvation, conquer! for ye must
Fight till sin is vanquished, buried in the dust;
Right shall be triumphant, God is true and just;
In his pow’r the great Almighty ye may trust. [Chorus]

3 Army of salvation, let thy fears be o’er;
Smite where heroes never dared to smite before;
Christ shall reign in glory, doubt it nevermore;
All the world shall own him Savior, and adore. [Chorus]
